Profile

Dr Kelum Gamage received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Electrical Engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 2007 and, PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the Engineering Department, Lancaster University, UK in 2011.

From 2007 to 2008 he was a lecturer to the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Moratuwa and also worked as a visiting lecturer to the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) and the Institution of Engineers (IESL), Sri Lanka. Kelum was successfully appointed to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority doctoral studentship in 2008 at the Engineering Department of Lancaster University. During his PhD project he developed a novel instrument / technique for real-time digital imaging of neutrons and gamma rays in a mixed radiation field (Patent No. GB2484315). In 2010 he was awarded the Faculty of Science and Technology Dean's award of excellence in PhD studies. 

He is currently supervising 3 full-time PhD students and has authored number of peer-reviewed papers in major international journals. His research interests have financially supported by the EPSRC, ERDF (via Centre for Global Eco-innovation), Nuclear Decommissioning Authority(NDA), Sellafield Ltd., National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the HW Communications Ltd, the Hybrid Instruments Ltd and the Faculty of Science and Technology Lancaster University. He is an editorial board member for Journal of Energy & Power Engineering, and also an active reviewer for Applied Radiation and Isotopes, Nuclear Instruments & Methods in Physics Research Section A, Radiation Protection Dosimetry, Applied Energy, Energy & Buildings and Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews. In 2012 he was awarded the Engineering Department’s outstanding academic research award. He is a Chartered Engineer of the Engineering Council (UK), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Member of the IEEE and IET. He is also working with IET as a professional registration advisor (PRA), where advises candidates applying for CEng registration.
